Make plans and you will make God laugh; this is what my father always tells me. And boy is he right!
The pictures you will see are from our 4th intent to make it out to Lisse. The town where we went last year to pick tulips, and the only place we know we can do this.
First time: There was a flower carnival, impossible to get there, all roads closed.
Second time: We arrived just to find out tulips were still not in bloom (due to a very cold spring).
Third time: The traffic was unbearable (did I mention the road, one lane each, is being renovated?) we drove back.
Fourth time: We made it by a tiny bit of patience, and yes it was rewarded. Indeed!!
At this moment every single vase and container in my house is filled with all the prettiness that we brought back from our short trip.
I hope all this color makes you as happy as it made me.
May your week be bright and warm (not too warm though)!
